Interesting Ethnic Workouts To Increse Your Stamina


Surajkand is a small village nestled in the Aravalli Hills in Haryana, India. The ancient sun temple stood here in AD1000. The villagers used to celebrate a small regional annual fair which has now gone global. People from various parts of the globe and those from SAARC countries participate to showcase their products and culture. A nondescript village has turned into a riot of colors enthralling its people with cultural performances, culinary adventures, and beautiful handicrafts.


The rhythms, sounds, and smells would accelerate your performance. Similarly, ethnic group fitness classes that celebrate diversity add an exciting and fresh dimension to your workouts. Let’s see some interesting ethnic workouts below.


Zumba is a Latin-based dance workout. It blends dance and aerobics. It is an interesting mix of hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, mambo, martial arts and some Bollywood and belly dance moves. The dance workout has different options and is considered safe for all ages. A typical session burns about 500- 1000 calories. Aqua Zumba is done in swimming pool.


Capoeira this workout has an interesting story behind it. It is a Brazilian martial art and includes elements of dance and music.  It was developed in Brazil by the descendants of African slaves and has a fair share of Brazilian influence. The workout gives co-ordination, more aerobic capacity, strength, and flexibility.


Tabura is a high-energy workout that pairs West African dance moves with military-style punching, jabbing and kickboxing drills. It improves heart health, burn calories, fat and improves mood and endurance. The workout sets you on fire once the beats of the African Conga and Junjun drum rhythms start.



Tabata is a Japanese exercise makes you fit in four minutes. This workout is based on the fact that short bursts of brutally hard exercises are as effective as hours of moderate training. A soon to be published research shows that Tabata protocol burns an extra 150 calories in the 12 hours after exercise even at rest due to the effect of post-exercise oxygen consumption. I guess this workout is pretty hard for an average person.

Bhangra workout is a centuries-old folk dance from India. It has been made into a dance and fitness program by the television host Sarina Jain. Another intense fitness regimen is that of the Bollywood music. It comprises of fitness and exercise routines which are heavily influenced by Indian Film songs. It helps you to lose weight in your hips, thighs, and tones up your core. It also relieves pain in the neck, back and shoulder area which may be caused due to long working hours.



 

Hope you would do any of these workouts to increase your stamina. 
Take care
